Leading Edge Aviation, a commercial pilot training company, based at Oxford Airport, UK, took delivery of one brand-new DA42 FNPT II simulator. The installation of the new Diamond simulator is the latest in a series of investments by Leading Edge Aviation (LEAL). The device forms an important part of the Multi-Engine phase of training and with a growing number of students, the second DA42 simulator couldn’t come soon enough for the company. It sits alongside their existing DA42 and A320 simulators situated at their Sim Centre next door to their Oxford Airport base.
 
Leading Edge Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer, Dave Alexander: “As Leading Edge Aviation grows, we want to continue to offer our student pilots the most advanced training possible. The DA42 simulator from Diamond will enable us to support our students not only with the best technology, but also in a timely manner. As we continue to expand, it’s important that we also increase our training capacity. The simulator compliments our growing fleet of Diamond aircraft, ensuring continuity of training for our students as they begin training on the single-engine DA40 before moving to the multi-engine DA42 aircraft and simulator, all using the Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck.“

Christian Schmid, Project & Key Account Manager, Diamond Aircraft Austria: “We are really happy to see our partner growing and expanding. This is the next step in order to complement LEAL´s high quality jet-fuel powered fleet consisting of nine DA40s and four DA42s with the corresponding Diamond simulator to provide an optimal training transferability for any student from simulator to the real aircraft. As a result, this acquisition perfectly matches LEAL´s approach to meet the highest standards of training and we are convinced that Leading Edge is tremendously boosting their ability to offer 21st century flight training.”

Diamond Aircraft’s flight simulation devices are exact replicas of the real Diamond aircraft, built with authentic aircraft parts, with real avionics, high-end visuals and OEM flight dynamic models for fidelity that is simply unsurpassed. The instrument panel is fitted with the original Garmin G1000 NXi avionics suite and standby instruments, allowing to train in a completely realistic environment. Diamond simulators are at the cutting edge of the industry to ensure the most sophisticated simulation training in preparation for advanced flight training.
